Meeting Willam Shatner
Hollywood Charity Horse Show gifting ceremony
GMCLA was proud to perform at the annual William Shatner Hollywood Charity Horse Show gifting ceremony in North Hollywood. Known for his iconic portrayal as Captain James T. Kirk on Star Trek and most recently as lawyer Denny Crane on television’s Boston Legal, Shatner begin the Hollywood Charity Horse Show over 25 years ago to raise funds for charities throughout Los Angeles. Since its beginning, the annual event has raised over $5 million.
Last December, Shatner along with his wife Elizabeth attended the holiday performance of GMCLA’s “Cool Yule” Concert – and became instant fans. So to honor GMCLA’s work and to thank them for their contributions to the community, Shatner invited members of the chorus to perform at the breakfast where donations were presented to over 40 non-profit organizations, including GMCLA. Shatner said, “The holiday show was thoroughly entertaining and a must-see for anyone who loves great singing, dancing and entertainment.”
